Wow.

Check this out. Make Poverty history. ... Gonna have to really look into this website......

THE CRUCIAL PART. WHAT WE ARE ASKING FOR.
In 9 words... TRADE JUSTICE. DROP THE DEBT. MORE AND BETTER AID.
The gap between the worlds’s rich and poor has never been wider. Malnutrition, AIDS, conflict and illiteracy are a daily reality for millions.
But it isn’t chance or bad luck that keeps people trapped in bitter, unrelenting poverty. It’s man-made factors like a glaringly unjust global trade system, a debt burden so great that it suffocates any chance of recovery and insufficient and ineffective aid .



Wow, and they complain when the United States intervene's with military force...... I wonder if these guys understand that the poverty in these nations will not end until their goverments are held accountable and thier people take personal responsibility?
